Director Phillip Pike will screen his new film Our Dance of Revolution. Protest and passion ground this documentary which is a long-overdue look at Toronto’s Black LGBTQ community, featuring a rousing oral history of struggle and triumph from four decades of local legends and freedom fighters. This is the story of the transformative power of community building. It’s the story of what happens when folks step out of their private comfort zones and step up to create community where there was none; step up to create activist, social, cultural and spiritual spaces where there were none reflecting the fullness of who they are. Following the screening Phillip will share stories and engage us in a dialogue about the transformative power of community building.
